Exchange 2010 & New Futures

I just finished building new Exchange 2010 org and posting the screenshots for those who did not have chance to see the new OWA, and its beautiful interface coped with many great futures.

As you have noticed on the bottom I have “archived mailbox” The idea is to give more with Exchange 2010, and product itself has many improvements. before I start talking about 2010, I would like to say it one more time, the exchange team has done “Incredible work” and I truly believe this is the best version of all in many aspects. so thanks to Exchange team and all its members for their hard work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Exchange always suffered so far with performance in my perspective and therefore it could not offer more, unlikely the version 2010, the major changes on message table schema and its structure allowed Exchange 2010 to run another 70 percent lighter on top of version 2007 and result is no more I/O  fair , this does not mean we still have to pay attention when we deploy exchange but since the 2010 is much lighter application , it did not have any problem including “ Second mailbox” linked to production called archived mailbox and not to worry about performance or the RAID configuration.

Exchange is becoming more like Active directory domain controllers, meaning ability to be redundant out the box as long as you stood up more then one exchange server.

Hi! Could you tell what Exchange version do you have? I have testlab on public beta, and I can't see any Archive Mailbox features in OWA after I've enabled 'alternate mailbox' for my account.
